Finished!

It took me 20 days, which gives me an average of 2500 words a day. Last year it was 2273, so I'm getting better, or at least quicker. Whoever said NaNo is harder the second time is very much wrong. I found it much easier this year (probably because I have some writing experience now).
The story still isn't finished though, faaaar from it. I just finished chapter 5. I have 19 chapters planned. I just hope it won't take me a whole year to finish. I still need to edit NaNo 06. But now I have two novel projects going on at the same time, yaay!

Only I'm miles behind with my homework (and whose bright idea was it to have a 5 hour long physics test next week?). My grades are still good though. I got top grades on that Norwegian test about Knut Hamsun (didn't stop me from having him murdered by a bunch of vicious emperor penguins) and the religion test which I didn't study for went well as well.

It's a bit sad that I've reached 50 k. Now I don't have that cool deadline to force me to write.

And what do I do without a deadline? Physics? Ha!

Catching up on the lost hours of sleep, more like.

Also, this is my 100th post *throws confetti*. Never thought I'd manage to write 100 posts about how much I hate physics lessons, whoa.

Congrats on the 50K.

I totally want the scene where the penguins kill Hamsun. :)

That's a big, fluffy cat you have there. Cute pic.

Okay, I'll post the penguin excerpt :)

My cat is actually really small. It's just her fur. It makes her look poofy.
